This was originally published as supplement of the 1969 Aspen “the Magazine in a Box” .
If you’re not familiar with this publication, it’s amazing there were ten issues, each completely different … Warhol curated #3 – lots of early Velvets material- and The Lennon Diary came as part of issue #7 The British Box.

Hilarious. Lennon has actually filled out the entire diary , without minor variation, “Got Up, went to work, got home , watched telly. ” Occasionally adds “fucked the wife“.
A complete Aspen Box sells for several hundred pound/ dollars. Each issue was completely different, the British box came in flimsy thin card box, most of which arrived crushed, few have survived well.
This version is the only reprint outside Aspen . A rare, if not obscure, Lennon item.
